Attention: Australians with current Consumer Credit Insurance (CCI) policies

Attention: open in a new window. Print

Many Australians have recently lost employment or been indefinitely “stood down” due to the COVID-19 / Coronavirus Pandemic.

If you have been affected, it is important to check with your CCI Insurer whether or not you are entitled to place an ‘Involuntary Unemployment’ (IU) or similar claim.

Don’t automatically assume that you are not covered. Some insurers are stepping up and providing temporary extensions of cover for claims arising due to COVID-19/ Coronavirus.

Visit your current insurer’s website and contact them to find out more.

You may need to be patient. The surge in enquiry may result in longer call waiting times than normal.


Covid-19/ Coronavirus Social Distancing Measures

Attention: open in a new window. Print

We would like to advise our members and extended community of our new social distancing intervention strategies that have been implemented at Macquarie Credit Union, to support Australia on our mission to flatten the curve and reduce the spread of COVID-19/ Coronavirus.
In branch, we have limited the number of visitors to 4 persons at a time to allow appropriate room for social distancing.  We ask that you maintain the 1.5m recommended distance from other visitors and our staff at all times.
Until further notice we will not be conducting any face to face client interviews or meetings. For the time being we will be making alternate arrangements over the phone, via email and online. 
We have also implemented a number of internal measures to socially distance our staff. We now have separate teams working to help you with your ongoing banking needs throughout this pandemic.
We thank you for your ongoing support of Macquarie Credit Union as we get through this unprecedented time together.
